THE WOODLANDS, TX: MATERNITY SESSION

I admit it. I have a special love for expectant Mothers. A woman expecting a child has a radiance that is not describable with words. For that relatively short period of her life, aware or not, she can perceive that something greater than her is taking place within. She cannot truly control it, she can only welcome it and observe it in awe. New life is being created within her womb but also in her own soul... whether that child is destined to be born or to live for only a little time within her womb, he is loved beyond words and has changed her very core.

The woodlands, tx maternity session: A windy evening...

How beautiful was this family! So much love that cannot be contained. When Ashley and Ryan hired me to document this very special time in their family, I immediately knew we were meant to meet. So many details of their story reminded me of my own. (One day, if I find the right words, I'll share my own story too...).  I don't believe in coincidences and I felt blessed to witness the fulfillment of a promise they had waited and prayed for.  One particular thing struck me about this maternity session: that very evening a delicate and cool breeze was blowing in the Woodlands, Texas.... Not an element that is usually present during our crazy hot Houston summers. In fact, to tell you the truth, I have been photographing evening sessions all summer and that was the FIRST and ONLY time we had some wind.... As you may know, for us Christians the wind represents the presence of God, the Holy Spirit, source of all life. What a beautiful and special sign for this baby. I can hardly wait to meet him next month!

The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit. - John 3:8

  This is one of my favorite maternity portraits ever! It happened in the last few minutes of our photo session - little Aubree was sitting on her daddy's shoulders and grabbed her Mama's cheeks to kiss her. So perfect... I know they will cherish this image for a long time.
